So these have to be the most Beautiful potatoes that i have ever seen on a plate. I have seen these about but have never thought to actually make them, till one day i saw them in a magazine and thought that for my next dinner party i will make them. And boy were they a hit. It is amazing how small slices in a potato can make something taste so much better.
Don't forget we eat with our eyes before our tummies.... So Its natural to visualise the taste before the actual moment. I think this is why i love sushi so much, because it is so beautiful..... Now back to these beauties....
Hasselback potatoes.... They came from Stockholm from a restaurant called Hasselbacken where they were first served. What a great and simple idea. Usually they are made with salt, butter and garlic, but i added a little twist to mine, and you can do the same.. Just add whatever you fancy....
